We made this a stop on our way to another park. It has good scenery, hiking trails, and an interesting history. If your family likes studying Vikings, like mine, they will enjoy this park.

The park is rich with historic value from the days of when the Vikings/Norsemen roamed North America. This would be an attraction to add to the "To Do" List for spending a day in eastern Oklahoma.
